EN “It's the terror of knowing what this world is about”, David Bowie sang in 1981, backed by Queen. He performed the remarkable feat of taking a song with such lyrics and creating a hit. Von Spar’s Under Pressure also knows what this world is about, with its intimidating posturing, acute social competition and the fight for survival as we enter an age of surveillance capitalism. The music’s inherent urgency is in evidence from the very first beat, yet it still appears to float freely, creating space for reflection and self-interrogation.

What others call a “band”, Von Spar see as a modular system. The creative community of Sebastian Blume, Jan Philipp Janzen, Christopher Marquez and Phillip Tielsch is in a state of constant flux. Von Spar is an interface, providing access to rediscovery and fresh experience of, to all intents and purposes, the familiar.

Under Pressure is their fifth album, not counting their homage to Can (recorded live with Stephen Malkmus). 15 years have passed since their debut Die uneingeschränkte Freiheit der privaten Initiative, five since the Streetlife album. On closer examination, there is a somewhat chameleon quality to Von Spar’s discography. Their records are the result of continuous metamorphosis, opening wormholes to post punk, krautrock and 80s art pop. The constants: rhythmic refinement and harmonic quantum leaps, swirling synthesizer arpeggios, backwards guitars with no hint of slowing down.

Luxembourgish band Ice in my Eyes will open the night with a music that sounds as if the sound from the 80’s had become an uncontrollable beast that catches you by the ears, takes over your feet and makes you dance. You’ve been warned!
